The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated For September 1, 2014 )

Hey Phillies Fans! You finally have something to cheer about!

I bet when Jonathan Papelbon didn’t get dealt this trade deadline, he didn’t think he would be closing out a no hitter.

Cole Hamels gets his name in the no hitter ledger, but now so do Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Papelbon of all people. A 7-0 win for the Phillies was NOT exactly what the Braves needed right now, but the Phillies have a highlight for the season.

Sadly that means taking Roy Halladay’s Division Series no hitter off this list, but oh well. History waits for nobody, especially not Jake Diekman,

It is time to update my list!

Against his old A's teammates, he has clubbed 7 HRs and added 25 RBI in 17 games thus far.

One of my devoted listeners sent me a Tweet.

This terrific Deadspin article accurately looked at baseball’s inability to sell itself.

I took it a few steps further, put part of the blame on Bud Selig, who I compared to Jay Leno and William H. Macy’s character in Fargo.

But hope for baseball comes, in all places, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Trust me, it all makes sense in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Pablo Sandoval, Clay Buchholz, Mike Trout, Alex Wood, Bryce Harper, Alex Cobb, Francisco Liriano and Brett Gardner all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
